Quotes
  • "I'm mostly interested in the human form as
    subject matter and means
  • of expression for my sculpture. What can generate
    more interest, fascination, beauty, ugliness,
    joy, shock or contempt than a humanbeing. Nov.
    26, 1981
  • I would try to do abstract work, but I always
    put a bit of an arm or nose in it. I never could
    do just non-figurative work. 1985
  • Im not duplicating life, Im making a statement
    about human values My
  • work deals with people who lead lives of quiet
    desperation. I show the
  • empty-headedness, the fatigue, the aging, the
    frustration. These people
  • cant keep up with the competition. Theyre left
    out, psychologically
  • handicapped.
  • The kinds of things I dress (my sculptures) in
    are very important. Their clothes have to reflect
    their attitudes and tell a story exactly

Materials and Technique
  • uses various materials
  • POLYESTER RESIN PLASTIC
  • FIBREGLASS material consisting of extremely
    fine glass fibers
  • BONDO an automotive repair body filler
  • BRONZE
  • technique
  • LIFECASTING Direct three-dimensional casts of
    his model in various materials with the surface
    is painted in skin tones. Then actual clothing,
    jewelry, and other props are added to create a
    realistic look.

11
Purpose or Meaning
  • To portray ordinary people as realistically as
    possible. Often each piece has a greater meaning
    or reflection on a controversial topic.

12
Elements of Art
  • All of the elements are used to create a
    realistic scene. The props and accessories give
    each sculpture a personality but the scaffold,
    cooler and other construction props create a life
    like space to the whole work. The textures are
    complimentary to their real life counter parts
    the wood feels like wood the clothes are
    clothes the skin is cool to the touch. Color and
    Value are also very realistically used.

13
Principals of Order
  • The whole work is very unbalanced and unified
    which makes the piece very realistic. Movement is
    key in all of Duane Hansens pieces- in this
    particular sculpture you can see the slight lean
    on the left leg, the weight of the bags in the
    womans hand and the hair being blown back.
  • Variety is seen in all of the pieces or
    accessories. The proportions are reflections of
    the pieces real life counterpart.
